The first settlers in the state of Maryland landed at St. Clement’s Island on March 25, 1634. The anniversary of the landing is marked by Maryland Day, which takes place each year on or near the date of the colonists’ arrival.
To celebrate Maryland Day 2022, several museums and landmark sites around the state will offer free admission during the weekend of March 25-27.

In Baltimore, the Maryland Center for History and Culture has an exhibit called “Discover Maryland” that showcases the founding and the facts and fiction of the landing.
